Define a bad parent.
It doesn't just have to be abuse or negligence. If you go out somewhere and you notice a parent not acting like a parent in front of their kid (s), does that make them a bad parent?
as long as they are being a good model, in words plus action
YES riaha, it does. Bad parenting includes rewarding a child with money or gifting or food to control bad behavior. When a child exhibits unlawful behavior and a parent commends them and then gets them out of it, there is l no lesson learned except that irresponsible behavior is ok.
Setting a bad example for their children is being a bad parent. These are the types who go by the principle "do as I say, not what I do." Kids are more likely to internalize behavior and actions that have seen seen as compared to following what they are told to do.
Not being a good role model is my definition of being a bad parent. Not teaching them right from wrong is a bad parent in my book.
Apart from cruelty and neglect...
Parenting is a 24/7/365 thing that doesn't end at the 18th birthday mark! While everybody may see different reasons to call somebody a bad parent, it is really the lack of effort you put in it.
If you did the best you can and your kids turned out aweful, at least you tried! I know a lot of kids that turned out great despite parents that weren't involved at all.
If you want to put it in a few short words: Lack of Effort!
A bad parent, beyond the obviously negligent or cruel parent, is one who fails to understand that you teach your child every minute, every day. Everything you do or say matters, as your child takes it all to heart. Parenting is relentless. It's rewarding, too, but it's not for the fainthearted. One must keep in mind, though, that a single day or incident of "bad" parenting doesn't make a bad parent. Even good parents have bad days. A good parent is one who really wants to be a good parent. A bad parent really doesn't care what kind of parent he or she is.
One who doesn't provide their children with a positive environment to grow up in.
This doesn't mean they have to be wealthy, or flawless, or anything like that -- just that they have to do their best to make sure that negative influences are kept away from their kids, and they also have to do their best to be a good role model and provider.
